    There is a loophole (sic). you probably meant:

    <ctt>find | xargs perl -i -pe's/depricated/deprecated/g'

    Yes, yes, I know I could do that, but I don't really want to break something that is currently working. That misspelling is spread across MSSQL Server as column headings in various tables, VB script ASPs, C++ applications, and Perl scripts. If I were to try to change it now, it would certainly break something.
